Tough Competition No Match For Colonel Clayton

In the locker room, his teammates call him “The Colonel.”

But given the way the Harvard men’s tennis team’s energetic junior co-captain Chris Clayton has been playing this week, he might soon be promoted to general.

Anchoring the No. 1 spot in the lineup, Clayton has led his team’s charge to a 2-0 record in the young spring dual match season, taking home two strong singles victories over tough opponents in last weekend’s Crimson wins against then-No. 38 William and Mary and Purdue.

Solko realizes her dream at Bollettieri

BRADENTON - Thok! An opponent lines a serve at Megan Solko.
Thok! Solko lines it back.
"Hit it like this - like this!" yells a tennis coach.
It's just another day of hard work in the sun for tennis players at the IMG Academy. But for Solko, this isn't work. And it's not particularly hard, not considering what she's endured the last year and a half.
With the help of the Children's Dream Fund and the IMG Academy' Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy, the 17-year-old Solko was a regular on the IMG courts the last two weeks.
